Default Virus Remover 2008 Virus infection need help

Hello,

Has anyone come across the Virus Remover 2008 trojan/rogue virus? I have had the antivirus XP problem as was able to take care of it but this one doesn't seem to want to be killed. It reappears when I start up internet explorer for the first time after running 3 different virus/trojan tools. I have tried combo fix, malware bytes, super anti spyware, smitfraudfix. Any ideas?

Mark

If the infection seems to be gone after you run all those, but then only comes back after opening IE you might want to run "hijack this!" and check the BHO's. You could also try opening IE in the "without add-ons" mode to see if that stops the infection. If so that narrows it down a bit.

The cynical in me says just to use Firefox though.

Default try this:

1. install and update "trojan remover" (30 day trial)

http://www.simplysup.com/tremover/download.html

2. install and update "spybot search and destroy".

enable tea timer then restart

enable advanced mode

delete suspecious entries in the activex, bho, and startup catagories.

tell tea timer to allow the deletion of the entries, when the virus tries to re copy the files tell tea timer to deny it.

then scan with various AV and AM software.

3. boot with a PE and scan and disinfect.


good luck

I gave up on this one over the weekend and did a re-install.

Default Try this removal tool

I found a removal tool which works well, just download and copy to HDD of infected PC then start infected PC in safe mode and run tool and follow on screen instructions.
Google internetinspiration roguefix and you will find it at bottom of the page.
Regards.

Roguefix is very similar to ComboFix. They're both excellent tools in the right circumstances but not nearly every situation.

Default Removal Tools

I agree, not every infected PC has the same type or severity of infection. I have seen quite a few removal procedures on many web sites to deal with spyware and virus infection and many people have different opinions on what is best to fix the problem. Some people just do a format and wipe, some use every possible virus scanner they can get their hands on
I must admit that I have tried a certain CD from a certain large company from the US which has several scanners and tools with great success.
I do format and wipe as a last resort.

@ the OP - have you had any luck with this? Sounds like you might have a rootkit hiding some malware that's re-infecting the PC.
